Twin Peaks, The Return, Finale

So, to the final episode of this great season of Twin Peaks. Things gets very strange in this episode and we wouldn't expect anything else from David Lynch.

We are taken to the Black Lodge where we see evil Cooper who is on fire for some reason. Mike creates a new Dougie Jones and he sends him back to his family. Cooper is with Laura in the woods when she disappears  after screaming. Where did she go? Cooper finds himself in the Black Lodge and he meets Mike. He sees that Laura is not there. He talks to the arm and then she shows up and tells him something before disappearing with a scream once again. Leland is there and he tells Cooper to 'find Laura'. Cooper ends up at Glastonbury Grove and he meets Diane. They look at each other, wondering if they are the real people and not doppelgangers. They are.

They drive off together. Cooper is looking for something. They stay over at a motel where they have sex. Cooper wakes up the next morning and she has gone. He finds a note from a woman called Linda and it is addressed to Richard. It says that he is not to look for her. Cooper leaves and continues his journey alone. He arrived in Texas and goes into a diner called 'Eat at Judy's'. He asks the waitress if there is another waitress working there. She tells him that there is , but she is on her day off. Cooper has an altercation with some cowboys and he comes out on top, then leaves after getting the address of the waitress.

Cooper comes to her house and when the waitress answers the door we see that she looks exactly like Laura Palmer. She says that her name is Carrie Page. Cooper tells her that he will take her back home to Twin Peaks. She agrees and packs some things. They leave in the car together. They arrive in Twin Peaks, but Carrie doesn't look as if she knows any of it.  They go to see Laura's mother, Sarah, but when they knock on the door, a stranger answers it. She says that her name is Alice Tremond. Cooper asks her about Sarah Palmer, but she doesn't know her. She says that she bought the house from Mrs. Chalfont. Cooper and Carrie go away and they don't know what has happened. Cooper wonders what year it is. Suddenly, Carrie looks at the house and hears Sarah Palmer calling Laura. She looks terrified and screams. The lights go out in the house. The episode ends with Laura in the Black Lodge whispering something in Cooper's ear.

The finale was weird. It didn't make a lot of sense. But, saying that, I enjoyed it. I liked the inclusion of Laura Palmer in the final episode. It was fitting that she was there with Cooper at the end. This episode raised so many questions. What happened to Laura? Where did she go? Who is Carrie? Is she Laura? Did Carrie remember when she heard Sarah calling her? So many unanswered questions. I hope that this will come back for another series  and explain what that all meant. I won't hold my breath though! This series was great. I loved it. I loved being back in Twin Peaks once again after so long. I loved seeing some of my favourite characters back again and I liked seeing Cooper in his many forms. Kyle MacLachlan was great in this series. He played three different characters which is not easy. He was the star of the show, I think. I would love to see more of this new Twin Peaks universe and I hope that we might get that chance in the future. I am a die hard Twin Peaks fan and I can wait for another series. Hopefully, it won't be another 25 years though!
